The Supreme Topic of 'Other' Knowledge. The stuff that simply has no other home.

I have a quick question that hopefully someone can answer. Does anyone know what fonts were used for "The Most Famous Hedgehog" and the "Don't just sit there and waste your time..." taglines?

Using What The Font, I've come up with Compacta Std Bold for "MOST FAMOUS HEDGEHOG:"

There might be a closer match yet, but the software had difficulty parsing the text rotated like that. You may want to level it out and try it yourself.

The "wasting your precious time" yielded three fonts that match very closely. A less artifacty image might help, but as it is Futura BT Pro Condensed, Twentieth Century Std Extra Bold Condensed, and Futura Arabic Condensed Bold are the best it can do.

While we're on the topic of fonts, what's the best way to format an image with the type in question before uploading to a site like What The Font? Sometimes I swear I couldn't make it more clear (to a point where I'd shop the text out of a photo or what have you, even messing with the contrast to make it stand out more), and the results still don't seem very accurate. Thanks in advance, but also feel free to trash this post if it's too off topic.

Yeah, the beat matches I could find using that weren't even within the top twenty, many of the top results were way off. But still, they did show up eventually (if they're proper matches at all), so I don't know what its deal is. The site also apparently has an option to ask an actual typeface nerd for guidance, so that might be worth looking into.

There's your full resolution screenshot. We've actually had this for a while, along with the others in that scan.


Confirms it's not a beta design. Shame, it'd have been hype. I'm imagining the beta designs might not have been modelled at all.

I'm guessing Ashthedragon saw the way the right shoe's sole is angled as being a red boot together with the other shoe, which it does look like in the blurry magazine screenshot

Question, why don't we have better pics of the Sonic 2 concept art (especially Ocean Wind Zone) yet?

I tried listening to the two tracks separately and couldn't hear it. The overlaid tracks are confusing to listen to.
